The City of Liberty Hill has issued a boil water notice as a precautionary measure, according to the city’s Facebook page.

“Due to an electrical problem with our water tower, a drop in water pressure occurred (Saturday) night,” the post reads. On Monday, it specified all customers of the City of Liberty Hill Public Water system need to boil water before drinking it, using it for cooking, washing hands or faces or brushing teeth.

The city will notify customers when the notice is lifted. It didn’t specify when it thought that would happen.
